Thoughts?

Skip it?

“Doesn’t look that cool but I’m going to watch it anyway” ?

“I’m more excited about it now!” ?

:hail:

There's too much Star Wars out there for my tastes. I am indifferent to this movie.

Seems decent enough. If the reviews are positive i'll see it on the big screen.

I do not mind a Star Wars movie once a year.

Woman:  I might be the only person who knows what you really are.

Solo:  What's that?


Oooooh....d'ya think she's gonna say "A SCOUNDREL"....??  


I'm not impressed.  :sarcastic:

I never watch movie trailers. But I will go and see it for sure at the big screen. Even tho I disliked Force Awakens and hated The Last Jedi. (I did like Rogue One!)

If it's a Star Wars movie, I'll go to see it.  I can't help it.  I'm one of those easy-going fans who mostly just digs the action, the spaceships, the lightsabres, the sweeping vistas, the sound effects and the music.  I don't understand the nitpicky fans who look for plot holes and unrealistic science.  I think you just need to let yourself go and keep your logic hat and your literary criticism hat at home.  It's fantasy; it doesn't have to make sense all the time.  Freakin' LIFE doesn't even make sense most of the time.


If it's badly acted, though, I'll be bummed out.



The above opinions do not apply to the prequels, which are just dead to me . . .

For me, good acting and dialogue are very important, but the Story is #1.  There has to be a good story to tell, and it has to mean something.

If this film is nothing more than space battles and smart-ass jokes, then it's a failure in my book.

Yeah, that's fine for now but wait a few years until they have a number of them out. There will be Star Wars burnout for a lot of people. It going to become like the superhero movie genre. There will just be too much out there and it won't be as exciting when a new Star Wars movie is released.

As for Solo, I'm not really interested in it. I think we got a pretty good idea of what his past was in the original trilogy. I don't think they need to dig deeper into it. He was a smuggler and scoundrel what else needs to be told?

Exactly!  There is no story to be told here.  Nothing that will matter in the overall Star Wars saga.

if done correctly, his backstory will be interesting. There was some cool images in that trailier

I'll go see it, but I'm guessing it will offer less than the animated Clone Wars series offers.

Disney will drive the Star Wars Saga into the ground.  6 feet under eventually.  Just like the NFL.

It's ridiculous.  

There is going to be a Boba Fett movie after 9.

Then of course they just green lighted Episodes 10-12.

Well, the Fett movie isn’t a done deal. It’s still in development. Apparently, Trank was supposed to direct it but he was canned due to some incidents on the set of 2016’s Fantastic Four.

Just curious - I can't remember - was Boba Fett referred to by name in Empire Strikes Back?

Pretty sure it wasn’t.

This is the power of toys!

You might remember around the time of Empire’s release, you could get a free Boba Fett figure through some kind of free mail giveaway.

Yup - I was one of the kids who got one in the mail.  Awesome.

I also remember getting some sort of action figure accessories thing - little belts and backpacks and stuff.
